    Vessel noise levels drive behavioural responses of humpback whales with implications for whale-watching

    Kate R Sprogis et al.
    Controlled exposure experiments reveal that underwater vessel noise level from a motorised vessel is an adequate driver of behavioural disturbance in humpback whales.

    Energetic and physical limitations on the breaching performance of large whales

    Paolo S Segre et al.
    Muscle power-generating capabilities, and not energetic limitations, limit the breaching abilities of the largest whales.

    Trade-off shapes diversity in eco-evolutionary dynamics

    Farnoush Farahpour et al.
    In a minimalistic, generic model of competitive communities in which evolution is constrained by life-history trade-offs, stable biodiversity emerges with species adapted to different functional niches.

    Animal Behavior: Whale breaching says it loud and clear

    Alexander J Werth, Charles L Lemon
    A whale leaping above the surface expends an enormous amount of energy, displaying its health and strength to peers and potential mates.

    1. Neuroscience

    Retrieval practice facilitates memory updating by enhancing and differentiating medial prefrontal cortex representations

    Zhifang Ye et al.
    Retrieval practice strongly engages the medial prefrontal cortex to integrate and differentiate memory representations, resulting in more effective memory updating.
    1. Neuroscience

    The computational nature of memory modification

    Samuel J Gershman et al.
    A computational model explains how the brain chooses between creating a new memory versus updating an old one when faced with an event that defies expectations.

    The brain in motion: How ensemble fluidity drives memory-updating and flexibility

    William Mau et al.
    Ensemble fluidity, observed as synaptic turnover and temporal drift in neuronal patterns, supports memory-updating and flexibility while maintaining memory stability.

    5-HT2a receptor in mPFC influences context-guided reconsolidation of object memory in perirhinal cortex

    Juan Facundo Morici et al.
    Serotonin, a neurotransmitter mostly studied in relation with emotions, also plays an important role in the control of episodic memories.

    POWERDRESS interacts with HISTONE DEACETYLASE 9 to promote aging in Arabidopsis

    Xiangsong Chen et al.
    Genetic and biochemical studies reveal how a histone deacetylase acts together with other chromatin regulators to promote the onset of plant aging.

    Episode 68: August 2020

    In this episode, we hear about Huntington’s and heart disease, insights into the academic job market, the effect of noise on whales, and how tiny ear movements can help detect the direction of a sound.
